Told through the eyes of 17-year-old Ernestine Crump, CRUMBS FROM THE TABLE OF JOY is a memory play about an African-American family from the Deep South that moves to bustling Brooklyn in 1950. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage (RUINED, FABULATION), CRUMBS is a lyrical, funny and compassionate gem that charms the heart with its delightful, unforgettable characters and its message of tolerance and hope for the future.  This production of CRUMBS FROM THE TABLE OF JOY is the second part of West Coast Ensemble Theater’s city-funded Diversity Outreach Initiative and is funded in part by the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
